Bradley would be eating CLEAN head shots and would just get outboxed he is NOT an enigma we have seen him lose to Manny 2x, which is no shame and he has struggled more than one time.. Kendal Holt had him down HARD, Tim is tough and determined but he is not in Floyd Mayweathers league..

Mat, Bradley did NOT “destroy” Alexander if you saw the fight it ended on BUTTS… Bradley is NOT the boxer that Floyd is that is why a guy like Provo can cause him brain damage for a couple months postfight… I like Bradley he is more willful than anything but technically he cannot hang with Mayweather… He got an S/D against Marquez who Mayweather basically defeated 12 rounds to 0…. Tim could not hit at 140 and obviously is not stopping guys at 147.. He loves to swing WIDE, Mayweather would pick him apart knowing the guy cannot hurt him…

Maidana would SMASH Algieri!! They sparred and Algieri discussed how Maidana hit HARDER than anyone he had ever faced including Provodnikov! Maidana is a nightmare opponent, strong, relentless, good chin and heavy hands..Algieri was down against Provo in he first round and he fought back which is cool, but Maidana is a different animal.

Bradley is a top fighter but he is 000000 threat to seriously hurt an opponent and his boxing skills are not there with Mayweathers so how is he gonna win? .

Floyd also cant seriously hurt a opponate, perfect, both Floyd and Bradley are points fighter, Bradley distroyed unbeated axexander who Floyd never fought, why because he similar to jab Judah who drop Floyd for the first time, Bradley out worked Judah , same as Floyd out worked judah. It be interesting as the only way to beat Bradley is to ko him or out work him, and we know Floyd can’t ko Bradley, How the points scoring goes? Well That I would like to see. But Floyd has a ban on top rank fighters so , khan will have to do he in Floyd camp So is Thurman , clean up your camp Floyd , manny shouldn’t help you. After you retired then he can.

Algieri is no top fighter. Yeah I do believe he would KO Algieri. If he didn’t he would put a hurtin on him. I could care less about the Madaina vs Alexander fight. If they were to rematch then I would take Madaina over Alexander who has looked nothing like that fight. Yes Algieri beat Ruslan who really isn’t that great. He is good if you are going to bang with him but if you box him. He is gonna get beat. Ruslan reminds me of Sam Peters. A decent jab and some side to side movement and you will win. Even when Bradley fought Ruslan, the rounds he boxed in he handily won. The ones he banged in he had trouble.

Mayweather fought a couple of serious JR MW bouts against Cotto and Canelo that put him in the ring with fighters who are MUCH more dangerous than Porter, Thurman or Bradley… Bradley is a top fighter but he is 000000 threat to seriously hurt an opponent and his boxing skills are not there with Mayweathers so how is he gonna win? flailing? being tough like against Provo? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Anyone saying that “Maidana got robbed” does not know a DAMN thing about boxing and they likely will start discussing Compubox 6 seconds after that…A robbery is a fight where the result is in such stark defiance of reality that those who rendered it must be living in their own world..Maidana made it rough early on, he was active and he did not let Floyd settle into just potshotting him with impunity.. That said he was also getting countered to the head on the inside and as the bout wore on he was getting punched in the head right in the center of the ring for all to see..Maidana, Oscar and Castillo are all guys who made Floyd work for periods of the fight as opposed to getting wiped out 10-1 or 11-1 that does NOT mean they won the bouts… Floyd Mayweather can win 8-4 or 7-5 just like EVERY other boxer.. Guys wanna award those who make it competitive the win but being “competitive” is NOT enough you actually have to outpoint the man and Maidana sure as hell did not do that…

You’d be welcome to come over, in all honesty, to watch the fight. I make the best pesto ever and have plenty of single malts and wine. We could argue in between rounds abt PPV. Sadly for you, I live in Asia.

Ppv is a capitalist marketing deal. If it don’t sell it don’t sell. Fingers get burned money gets lost. The market balances it all out.

If you want the best fighting the best the solution lies elsewhere. It lies in a SINGLE boxing authority making fights happen. Forcing face offs. Then networks and promoters could fight over the bid. That, obviously, isn’t happening this century, so we are stuck with what we have. It won’t stop me complaining abt how the sport is mis managed and abt gutless fighters.

In order for maidana to be in the fight he has to establish his jab, the first fight he got away with hitting Floyd’s because of Floyd wasent expecting the lack of respect. maidana was not afraid and ga e Floyd little room to work, he got Floyd angry, he got hit, pluss the pressure cause Floyd to slugg back in the slugger trenches .

This fight Floyd will box, chino has to touch Floyd first, and bum rushing might not be enough. He eat a jab and a short right hand and skip away.
Get he jab or left to the body working first, then that will open up for harder punches on Floyd. Or maidana will be shutout. He’d didn’t use that left body hook or jab on fight 1. That the answer for fight 2

Tark brook and Thurman are fighters that Floyd do well with, why? These are ko fighter, as canelo, or gerrero or Ortiz, there are not point fighters or exoerinced as PAC Bradley ,khan, all Floyd has to do is not get knock out and he win a UD, little points,

remember porter last fight he was trying to take brook out, doing that he couldn’t even lands points,

you needs get that jabbing estabish or counter punch first to get Floyd concentrated away from that power punch, your jab in his face hide the punch coming behind it.

Khan can keep up with Floyd in boxing.speed and busy, and he be points or rounds range, and he has the ko danger , he drop Floyd he win that part is what Floyd afraid of, as that mean Floyd can’t set on his punches, or hang around close, or he can be koed.
So from outside unless you didnt see ( rare) a A-fighter can’t get koed directly unless that punch is set up. Human radar floyd and pac has it. And that is jabbing or counter punches are hitting first only then ko can follows.

Champion- Pacqioua
1. Amir Khan
2. Timothy Bradley
3. Devon Alexander
4. Maidana
5. Thurman
6. Brooks
7. Porter
8. Juan Marquez
9. Mayweather
10. Guerrero
All fighters that are ahead of Mayweather are been avoided makes him the lesser fighter. Maidana got rob the first time. Marquez got run down by a fat Mayweather. Everybody else will be avoided.

Brook and Thurman rank 1 and 2 as Floyd’s most dangerous WW opponents… Pacquiao is 3, because his reach, height, size, and power at WW aren’t as formidable.

Chris Algieri lacks experience, skill, smoothness, stealth, and power… However he’s smart. He’ll give Manny all kinds of trouble because Pac’s a midget.

Where did we hear this before?
   
Team Alexander To Floyd: Pick Guerrero To Keep Your ‘0’

The social media networks have been buzzing ever since pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26KOs) dropped his bombshell tweet stating that IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander (24-1, 13KOs) was the frontrunner to be his opponent on May 4th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Prior to the Tuesday tweet, it was widely thought throughout the industry that it was a mere formality that Robert Guerrero would be the one facing Mayweather on Cinco De Mayo weekend.  

Alexander’s manager and trainer Kevin Cunningham threw more gasoline on the fire when he exclusively told Boxing S. that Mayweather’s only option is facing Guerrero if he wants to keep his perfect record intact.

“Floyd says Devon is the frontrunner to get the fight but I don’t blame him for taking his time with making a decision. Because if I know Floyd he wants to keep his ‘0’, so he better choose Robert Guerrero,”

No disrespect to Manny but he is clearly past his best and on the old side of 35, all the high living hard training and hectic schedule have taken years off his life. I’m young, intelligent confident and just entering my prime years, i have a football field of reach on the little guy and even with Manny wearing 5 inch lifts i stand a head taller.

Maidana would not KO Algieri. That’s a stupid comment.

Maidana couldn’t KO Khan… Morales… Broner… Alexander… Floyd… or Kotelnick… and he lost 4 out of 6 of those fights… pretty much the top guys he’s faced.

He’s definitely not a puncher in the class of Golovkin, Kovalev, Haye, Klitschko, Matthysse, Mikey Garcia, or even Danny Garcia.

Algieri would beat Maidana’s ass better than Khan did. Chris lacks experience and skills right now, but he has the mental aspect. He’s glued into the fight no matter what happens.

Tightly shut eye the size of a big Macintosh? Left hand broken in 5 places?

NOT a problem.

He had to take over a year off from Boxing and have surgeries on his left hand… that was fine with him. He still did his running and shadow boxing.

He rolls with whatever… Nothing stops or deters him.

Nope I’m not. This is not a PPV fight. Not all fights are PPV worthy. Neither is Fliyd vs Madaina. Not to mention if you are going to have a PPV fight then the whole card should be good and neither fight has a really good under card. So no I’m not complaining about Pac. This has more to do with the industry as a whole. But if you want to pay for it for me or you live in Austing I’m more than happy to take your money or watch it at your place.

Well I have stated numerous times I don’t care that Algieri gets the fight. He can get his pay day. I just have an issue with it being on PPV. I still want to watch the fight, but now I have to find someone that actually wants to purchase this fight. People are upset about it because Pac fans talk trash about Floyd and his opponents then make up some type of theory or story trying to sell an opponent that is now way better than Floyds opponent. That is the issue.

Posted September 3, 2014 4:44 pm 


PEEJ

So basically Pac can’t find a better dance partner because Arum refuses to work with Haymon. Sounds like that is a duck. You know since folks say Floyd is ducking Pac because he doesn’t want to work with Arum. I seriously doubt there is that much money to split anyways on a fight between Pac and anybody else not named Floyd or Marquez. Fact is there are other fights that could of attempted to be made. If Arum doesn’t want to work with Haymon that is fine but don’t try to sell the fact that it can’t be made because Thurman is not signed with Golden Boy. That has nothing to do with it. And nobody would be sued as long as Haymon was apart of it. The same way that Arum says HBO has to be apart of a Pac fight even though he does not have a contract with HBO

Posted September 3, 2014 4:42 pm

It’s ok peej Floyd and PAC dont have to fight. PAC going his own way to 140 lb that why I don’t get it, what are the Floyd fans mad about this. Floyd making his million, and PAC going where the lesser money at but there enought for 7 more fight that what he contracted out for.

Posted September 3, 2014 4:41 pm

The fear of being sued is because you up front 30-40 millions and the other partner don’t have authority to represent that fighter he sight on to fight. Al hamon has to be on board, but arum not dealing with him because halmon would not go around Richard and still have some fight. iam sure arum tried, there a gruge between them, so that mean personal contact was made and the result was bad.

Posted September 3, 2014 4:37 pm

Haymon did not agree to not fight any Top Rank fighters. That has never been said. And Haymon would have to be apart of it because he is the fighters manager. Haymon manages a lot of fighters. And his stable keeps growing. It was Arum whom said he did not want to work with Haymon.

Posted September 3, 2014 4:22 pm 


Mat

Because he would want profit from his fighter, Oscar would be working on promoting a fight and halmon not a part of. Remember hamon agreed with Richard to not fight top rank fighter, arum trid to go deriectly to him but was refused, hamond stuck with Richard on not dealing with tip rank fighters, that still in effec.

Arum will not up front 30-40 million on a unsigned fighters, or Oscar has to bring hammon to the table to sign off his fighter. It’s a 3 ways money split.

As I said before, I can’t get over how big PAC’s casaba melon of a head is. I don’t know who has the biggest melon head between PAC, GGG and Barry Bonds.

Algieri is NOT in Mannys class and if he proves to be it will tell us that Pac Man is WASHED up because he would have murdered Algieri just a few short years ago lets get real about this… Chris being able to “Box” would not save him because all the elements he has to battle are foreign to him, getting hit by a fighter as fast and experienced as Manny is a league beyond anything he has EVER done… Manny beating Algieri will only prove that he is not washed up and that he can predictably dispose of a sub World Class fighter

Why would they be sued for making the fight? All Arum has to do is talk to Haymon. But he doesn’t want to. I find that funny since every was saying Floyd was scared of Pac because he kept saying he doesn’t want to work with Arum. But Arum gets a pass for saying the same thing, not wanting to work with Haymon. Whom by the way has a lot of fighters signed.

Marquez wants 20 million the fight not worth 40 million. Math dont work out. Also remember manny heading where the fights and belts are they at 140 l, I head today that maidana migh want manny in the next fight. I think many should do maidana next then mo e back to 140 lb.

Posted September 3, 2014 3:28 pm

Why couldn’t Thurman be an option? There is Khan, Alexander,Guerrero , Marquez.

Thurman and Guerrero are al hammon fighter out, khan can’t fight till next year and he has a fight promised for Floyd he Floyd manatory and so is manny, and secound choice is brook there have a grudge match in uk.plus that Floyd camp of fight he has to clear out yet. Marquez was first choice he have said about 10 times he has nothing to prove, he happy without a belt.LOL pluss he wantd only million. Fight not worth that high.

Because GBP and arum can be sued if Oscar made that match up. Remember I said long ago almamon has to come out and say he allow his fight to fight arum? Because halmon has a choice to go against Richard and continue to fight fighter of top rank when richard said he not dealing with arum, but he side with Richard, I am sure arum tryed to call al hammon and tryed to go around Richard ban, but he was turned down and look like they was nasty word exchanged, so arum want to hear some humble words of hamon first. Then they can anounce they can fight each other.

Why couldn’t Thurman be an option? There is Khan, Alexander, Guerrero, Marquez. All those fighters are free and are all ranked at Welter. Algieri is not. Now I don’t have an issue with this fight. I just have an issue about it being on PPV. I already know the Floyd haters are going to hate. They will try and sell this fight for Pac and say Floyd is cherry picking. Hard to say you are cherry picking when the fighter you are fighting is ranked 4th, only behind Pac and Marquez. At least he is on boxrec which I am currently looking at. He is ranked 5th in the Ring.

You might be right half way, not really in that sense of lowering Floyd stock just say he has gain a further chance of defeating a boxer as Floyd. if chris is no chalange and as manny will out box him to get inside. And

the other half is who is the W.W fighter manny should have face at that time of choosing? Not Thurman, as he not sign on to GBP. Canelo is.but he only go down to 154 lb.
there are two other unknown fighter that are at 2 place in ranking but really are worst fighter pick.

Posted September 3, 2014 2:50 pm 


PEEJ

Actually no there are other Welters he could of fought. And if he crushes Algieri that will not lower Floyds stock. It will help with Pacs mental mind set knowing he may be able to handle a boxer. But I am going with Algieri he to make Pac look terrible at times. Pac still wins the decision though.

Posted September 3, 2014 2:25 pm 


Mat

Boxing matches are about styles, and about and raw talent and training, what defied you your boxing career status or fighting contracts? Winning a belt of that weight does, Chris has the 140 lb wbo belt, Lamont has another belt, Danny Garcia has 2 belts,
The fight is at 144 lb, Chris wanted a 147 lb fight, can’t as the belt rated at 140 lb. 144 lb halfway for both side is the only fair.if Floyd doesn’t want to fight manny. Clear out and unfieding the 140 lb.belts are a fantastic goal, unless you rather see reun fights.

Thank, professional writer, not like boxing 24 Rob smith here, trying to Change fight or events history to his point of view, which is a Floyd fan boy, stay neutral, then you don’t provoke hate between the fighters camp. Algeri is a good boxer,he has the equipments of a boxer and guys who are undeafeated in kick boxing. 20-0 And boxing 20-0 find a way to win. Manny has to out box Chris, this fight will show if manny can handle boxer that more and avoild getting hit. Like Floyd, manny get a hard time, Floyd stock rises, manny get a UD and crushes boxer Chris, Floyd stock get lowered. This was the best fight avaiable at the time, everyone was fighting or booked..
